You've shopped on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but now it is #GivingTuesday, a chance to give back to your community. We invite you to make a gift that will impact every single student at GWU by giving to GW Libraries. Whether it is providing scholarly resources for research, making unique special collections accessible or offering a comfy chair in which to study, the Libraries support every student.
When you give to GW on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back no matter where you choose to direct your support, you give the gift of education.

Arlington Campus Library is hosting a trial session of a graduate writing group on Friday, December 4, 9:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. Modeled on the popular Friday writing group on the Fairfax Campus, the Arlington Graduate Writing Group is designed for all Mason PhD and Masters students from all disciplines who seek group accountability as well as a quiet space to write. Students should bring their coffee, laptop, a set of goals, and a commitment to arrive on time and stay for the entire session. The group will begin with a short conversation about goals, and end with a short wrap-up on accomplishments. The remaining time is dedicated to writing. Learn more about it!
By registering for this event, you are committing to:
- Arrive on time at 9:30 a.m. and to stay for the session’s duration until 1:00 p.m.
- Turn off access to Facebook, online games, and other computer/online-based distractions during writing time
- Minimize phone distractions by limiting texting and phone calls to scheduled break times
- Contribute to a supportive writing community among fellow participants
- Register Now!
Helen McManus, Public Policy, Government & International Affairs Librarian, will coordinate the December session. The library is planning to hold a weekly Arlington writing group beginning in January 2016.
Yearbooks from GW and the Mount Vernon College and Seminary are now available online on archive.org. You can browse approximately 100 years of yearbooks for GW (1908 - 2009) and almost 90 years for Mount Vernon (1911 - 1998).
Scanning these yearbooks and making them available and accessible online is an on-going project of the GW Libraries' Special Collections Research Center and the University Archives. We will be adding additional yearbooks over time.
